This article lists the various minor fictional characters who appear in the various short stories of the Videssos Series. These characters play, at best, a peripheral role in the series. While they were usually given a name, some weren't. Most were simply mentioned or had a very brief, unimportant speaking role that did not impact the plot, and never appeared again.
"The Decoy Duck"
Hoel and Vasa
Zoïlos was a merchant from Skopentzana. One day, he purchased a Haloga slave named Kveldulf. Zoïlos often prayed to Phos in the morning at Skopentzana's chief temple. Eventually he began to take Kveldulf with him. When Zoïlos realized Kveldulf had begun to believe in Phos, he freed Kveldulf.
Bonosos was a Videssian mage and priest of Phos attached to the army of General Kypros Zigabenos, and present at the siege of Sotevag. Bonosos detected Haloga mage Kolskegg Cheese-Curd's attempt to use necromancy to falsify Ulror Raska's son's death. Zigabenos was skeptical that the Halogai were using necromancy, which insulted Bonosos.
Later, Bonosos confirmed, incorrectly, that Ulror was indeed dead.
Branes was a tavern keeper in Develtos. He blanched when Kassianos suggested that Patriarch Tarasios might take an interest in the behavior of monks who frequented the establishment. Kassianos then told him that if the matter was rooted out then and there, the Patriarch would never have to know.
